Proteolytic Enzymes- "The Unsung Heroes"
Enzymes are essential in catalyzing thousands of biochemical reactions critical to the metabolic processes of almost every cell in your body in order to keep you alive and thriving. Enzymes either catalyze the breakage of a larger molecule into smaller molecules, or help bind two molecules together to produce a new molecule. While enzymes are essential for many critical processes in the body , proteolytic enzymes are scientifically known for their ability to digest dietary proteins. Proteolytic enzymes are commonly found in fruits such as Papaya, Pineapple, Fig, and Kiwi.
In general, proteases are classified according to their catalytic site (ie cystein proteases, serine proteases, aspartic proteases, and metalloproteases). Proteases are present in all living organisms involved in metabolism and also assist in the proper dismantling of cell structures during apoptosis (cell death). In plants, proteases protect themselves from fungal and bacterial invaders by specifically catalyzing the hydrolysis of peptide bonds between amino acid residues in a polypeptide chain of the offending invader.
Specific proteases act on specific amino acids and cut the peptide bond in a specific location. Cystein Proteases (CPs) contain a Cys-His-Asp triad active site. Their main physiological role is the metabolic degradation of peptides and proteins. For this reason, they are commonly used as meat tenderizers. CPs are involved in MHC Class II antigen presentation immune functions, apoptosis, prohormone processing, and extracellular matrix remodeling that is improtant to bone developement. Recent research clinically suggests these powerful systemic enzymes are the "unsung heroes" working throughout the entire body to promote healthy blood flow and platelet function. In addition, they support a healthy inflammatory response and overall joint health.
Also known as Bromelain Enzymes. These are known to break down protein chains and fight inflammation in the GI Tract. Bromelain is an anticoagulant that breaks down sticky fibrin in the blood stream that would otherwise lead to clotting-making it an ideal blood thinner and a key proponant of antiaging. It also thins mucus, which can help with Asthma symptoms and Bronchitis. Other research has shown its positive effects on fighting inflammation throughout the body- not just the GI tract- which can help with recovery of minor muscle injuries, such as sprains and strains. Overall, Bromelain supports the immune system for better, overall health.
Also known as Papain Enzymes. This enzyme has many of the same benefits as Bromelain: fighting inflammation, breaking down protein chains, and working as an anticoagulant (blood thinner). It functions by breaking down bonds in proteins, which is why it is commercially used as a meat tenderizer. In the body, papain specifically breaks down and helps to remove weak or damaged protein bonds. These weak or damaged bonds may cause discomfort. Papain is able to support the body's natural tissue protection process by promoting the maintenance of healthy protein.
Kiwi is originally from Northern China, and was brought over to New Zealand in the early 20th Century. Its many benefits include lowering blood pressure, fighting Asthma, supporting digestion, and boosting the immune system. This fruit is rich in Vitamin C and antioxidents. The enzymes found in Kiwi also help to break down protein- thus giving it its digestive benefits.
Figs are rich in Vitamin A and K. They can help with restoring the tone of the instestines, thus helping support the GI Tract. Additionally they're high in Calcium and Potassium, which helps support healthy bone density
